AFLBS: Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit

Of all the leadership summits I attended, one of the most unforgettable is my 2-day experience with the 6th Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit. I hope other students will be interested to join the summit.

  • Certification from the School Registrar stating the overall cumulative GPA / GWA of the applicant.
  • Certifications supporting leadership experience, awards received, and community involvements.

Hard copies of the duly accomplished application form and the requirements must be submitted to the designated school official in a long brown envelope. Applicants may also send them directly to our corporate offices.  
All application documents submitted will become the property of the company and will NOT be returned to the applicants.

Screening & Selection
  • All applications submitted will be evaluated by Corporate HR.
  • Corporate HR will screen the applications based on the following criteria: academic performance, leadership ability, awards received, community involvement, recommendations, and personal essay, artwork, or photograph.
  •  Corporate HR will determine the shortlisted applicants who will proceed to the panel interview. Applicants will be notified via phone call.
  • Panel interviews will be conducted at the corporate offices of Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc. in Cebu and Makati. Other non-Cebu applicants will either be interviewed in their respective schools or at the different Aboitiz Group business units.
  • After the panel interview, Corporate HR will then select the top 90 delegates who will join the 2-day Summit in Cebu City. They will be notified through their designated school official. Results will also be posted on the official AFLBS Facebook account.
